Eggesford entries close on Sunday, with Claire Wright, Barn Lane Farm, Stoke Rivers, Barnstaple. We have been asked by the committee to be on time with our races and have to be clear of the paddock when the first point to point runners go in.

Briefing will be at 10.30am followed immediately by the course walk. Hats/body protectors/medical armbands will be checked at the briefing.

Tack checking is 11.25-11.40am at the end of the box park near the barn, 138s first please. Ponies must be in the paddock promptly at 11.40 and noon respectively and be out of the paddock 11.50 and 12.10 - this is because it takes a while to get to the start at Eggesford, especially in the 148s. On this occasion we WILL NOT be able to hold the 148 race, so if you are not in the paddock on time you will not be able to race. Please help us make the day enjoyable for you by keeping to the schedule. It is important at this course due to the fact that the cars come in at the bottom end of the course and have to be stopped during the pony racing for your safety.
